The secret terrorist organization that came within a heartbeat of installing its agent as President of the United States in Executive Actions is back with a new--and deadlier--plot to destabilize the U.S. government. It all begins with what appears to be a simple mugging and murder of a female White House staffer. Secret Service agent Scott Roarke discovers the truth: that the murder was committed by his secret nemesis, the mysterious assassin who had managed to always stay one step ahead of him during the presidential campaign. This time Roarke has found clues about the assassin's past that give him the tools he needs to hunt the hunter, but the clues can only go so far.

First off, I agree with KeesLover's review. As seems to be the trend amongst many authors these days, the book leans heavily to the left fringe. Conservatives are bashed and made out to be gun-toting rednecks that want to take over the government. Quite humorous to say the least that an author can be so shallow minded.

Secondly, the book is too detailed on information that is not necessary for the story. That is why the author placed a list of characters and their respective roles at the beginning of the book. If you have to list the characters and their roles at the beginning of the book to keep the reader aware of all that is happening, then perhaps the book isn't worth the read when many authors can tell a similar story without the minute details and character roles.

I don't recommend the book. Took a long time to tell a rather predictable and short story. ( )

One word describes this second political thriller from talented author, Gary Grossman:Mind-blowing (okay, so technically two, but you get the picture....). Absolutely mind-blowing. Grossman has taken his knowledge and skills and put them, once again, into a highly gripping, edge-of-your-seat, heart-pounding read. From start to finish the action, the threats, all of it become realistic and pulls you in.

Once again, the reader is swept away and placed into the heart of a terrorist's plot to destroy the White House, staff, President and all. Agent Scott Roarke is back and better than ever in his hunt for the terrorist, after a woman is murdered. It's once again a race against time to save the President, and the country, before this crazed terrorist cell can accomplish their deadly aim.

Agent Roarke dives into the fast-paced hunt for clues, trying to turn the tables on the person responsible for the cell and killings. Each new clue brings more heart-pounding suspense, intriguing twists and turns. But, the question is, will Roarke be able to stay ahead of this terroristic treason plot or will more lives be lost and endangered?

I definitely recommend this with high 5 Book ratings. It's fast-paced, blood-pumping, heart-pounding suspense at it's finest. When you reach the end, you're jaw will be on the floor and you'll be wondering when the next installment will be released, as you'll want more of this addictive series. Amazing job, Mr. Grossman. Bring on the next! ( )
